History Edit

Eros Incident Edit

Once the Rocinante returns from the battle at Thoth Station, Sam was the foreman of the ship's repair project. While working on the ship, she befriended  Naomi Nagata.

The Ring Edit

Sam was Chief Engineer on the Behemoth on its mission to the Ring. During the coup to take back the Behemoth from Captain Ashford, and Cortez, she allies herself with Holden, Naomi and their crew to help throw off and delay Ashford's plan to destroy the Ring. She is then executed by Ashford after her second in engineering, Ruiz, tells the captain that the repairs could be done much quicker exposing the fact that she is stalling for time.

Notes Edit

  • Throughout most of the books, this character is named "Samara" and is referred to as that or as "Sam"
  • Toward the end of Abaddon's Gate and again at the beginning of Nemesis Games, the book starts referring to this character as "Samantha"
  • The television adaption lists the character as either "Samantha" or "Sam". The TV show has not referred to the character ever as "Samara" yet.
  • It appears some of the aspects Sam's relationship with Naomi were transferred to Drummer in the TV series. Since Sam's TV show equivalent appears only briefly and Drummer has a close relationship with Naomi.
  • Sam character from the books also traded in her red hair in the leap to the screen for black hair
